Purdue Extension enhances Indiana communities by sharing research-based information and education from Purdue experts to meet the unique needs of each county in Indiana by strengthening future leaders, our agricultural industries, community and regional economies of all types, and the health and happiness of residents.

As a part of the Cooperative Extension Service, we're funded by a partnership between federal, state, and county government and are a part of a network of colleges, universities, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. For over 100 years, we've shared solutions customized for local communities in the areas of agriculture and natural resources, community development, health and human sciences, and 4-H youth development.

Our volunteer-based organizations include 4-H, Purdue Master Gardeners, and Extension Homemakers. We offer educational programs for youth and adults, and provide support and training for our volunteers to enable them to extend services throughout the county.
